I've sold my game.

Post by BatmanTurian on Mon Jan 21, 2013 4:22 pm

If IT DLC turns out to be true, I'll just watch on youtube. This move by Chris Priestly was too much for me. I took it far more personal than I ever thought I could and couldn't stand to look at my mass effect games on my shelf anymore.

I still support you guys and will be around to discuss but I obviously won't be around as much as I used to be, when I was part of the core. I am impressed with all of the lurkers coming out and supporting us and I appreciate all of the newcomers. Fresh eyes will be good to have when discussing the theory and can only make it stronger

But, for me personally, it's been enough. Once you can't stand to even look at your game anymore, it's time to move on. I sold my games and I don't really feel bad about it. That's how much this killed Bioware for me. If ME4 is promising, I might consider it. But consider me one of their newest disgruntled fans. I only support them in the fact that I think IT is true and they were smart enough to do it and pull this mind game on us.

In the end, I've made a lot of friends here and some of you are still on my xbox live friends list, and we'll play together again sometime. I've had some good times and the only bad times I can honestly say I ever had were arguing with Hanar. You guys are great, logical, welcoming, and open, like the rest of BSN should be.

Anyway, I just felt I should leave something to explain my absence rather than drop off the face of the Earth. I'll try to keep track of what's going on and I'll put my two cents in when I feel like it. But consider me an essentially inactive supporter. There are not enough sad or angry emoticons to put in this post for how I feel right now.

I'll still be here in spirit even if I'm only lurking or I no longer post anymore. Keep speculating, my friends.

Hey man thats too bad but I can somewhat feel your frustration, which is why I never went and bought the ME3 game when I first heard of the uproar on the game's ending. I played my roommate's copy on his account when he was done with his play-through. I then got to understand what all the fuss was about, indeed it was a big deal like they all bemoaned.

My intention of buying my own copy will depend on what they plan to do with these endings they have given us. If nothing happens am not buying ME3.

I know your call-sign from the BSN forums. Sad to see you go.

That's too bad. Well, I hope you'll continue doing what you think is right :)

Sad to hear that.
I've always enjoyed your posts.
I hope that you will post once in a while and that the IT reveal (if/when it happens) may rekindle your love with the ME trilogy...
And I think that you should not blame the game for the rude behaviour of one individual that tries to be community manager.

What happens to your posting abilities, now that you have sold the games off? Do you loose the posting privileges on the BSN forums?

No, I'll still be able to fuck with people on there if I feel like it, but I'm generally apathetic about it all these days.

I'm not blaming the game. I'm just doing what is in my psychological best interest and out-of-sight, out-of-mind is best right now. I'm not a Bioware hater, I'm just disappointed in their PR over the last year and have been for a while. CP was the last straw.

I will still post, just not as much.

Ah ok then that's good. Rub some of those troll vermin a little bit just to let them know they are not ready to feel comfortable yet.

See, this kind of stuff is what makes CP horrible at his job. He must have blackmail material on someone. I cant see why else he's still around.

Agreed 100%. I can't believe we still have people saying we should be respectful to that bastard.

Damn, dude.

To me it feels like you're giving up the race in sight of the finish line, but it's your decision and I respect that.

Just makes me sad, really.

Its more likely that they literally can't push him out of the door without removing several walls.

Oh snap! (Which coincidentally is the sound Priestly's chair makes when he sits down.)

Okayguys, personally insulting him won't get us anywhere and only feul the fire of hatred. Do what i do: stop caring. If you hate something, you still have feelings for the source. Meanwhile, if you stopped caring, you don't feel anything towards the source which is the greatest insult of all.
